I've seen mutliple threads on this topic and have followed every instruction such as redownloading dreamweaver and restarting my computer and clearing preferences and it is only a short term solution. When I boot up my computer the next time, this glitch happens again. Everytime I create a document, HTML or CSS, right after I save I cannot see the code. I know the code is still there it just disappears from my view. I save and then it goes black. I've tried absolutley anthing and I cannot afford to reinstall Dreamweaver everytime I need to use it, it is ridiculous. My Dreamweaver is up to date and everything.

I can't reproduce it on my end so it's not a bug. 

 

Does your CPU and GPU meet min-requirements?

Graphics display is controled by your GPU and graphics drivers.  Have you updated your drivers from the card manufacturer's website?

 

Are you using more than one display?

Toggle between Design & Live view with Ctrl + Shift + F11.

Can you try running DW in another user account and see if the issue persists to rule out an OS user issue?

Where are you saving files? 

Are they saved to your computer's primary hard drive?

Yes.  Also within the past hour I have found a solution that is way easier to replicate. Everytime I open a new file it still does this,  however, if I go to View and toggle Code view twice everything works like normal. I have no idea why.

Also I am not using more than one display and and I toggled between those modes and it was all the same.  I have no idea why toggling code view makes it work but, I'm not complaining.  Hopefully this thread will help someone who's having a similar issue.

After saving file with Ctrl + S, use F5 to refresh the display.

Does that work?

That didn't work either. Only toggling the code view seems to solve it.

Did you try updating your drivers to the latest version as suggested to see if that helps the issue? Also did you try logging in as another user on the computer to see if the issue persists on a new user account to rule out any OS user issues?

I tried both. The only thing that seems to solve it was toggling the code view.
